the affordable health care for america act. the bill would more accurately be entitled, the big spending, big taxing, big entitlement, pelosi plan for big government takeover of america's health care act. despite house majority leader steny hoyer claiming that during their press conference that the health care bill was part of an open and transparent process to reform our health care system, the american people were oddly prohibited from even attending the liberal democrat's pub less -- publicity rally on the steps of the capitol. mr. speaker, this really isn't surprising considering the democrats habit of frozing -- freezing republicans out of the process. mr. speaker, the new pelosi plan looks and sounds starkly similar to the democrat's first attempts at a big government takeover of health care, h.r. 3200. that is because essentially it is the same big government socialist nonsense speaker pelosi introduced months ago. the same plan that caused nearly millions -- cause literally millions of american to speak out against it through letters, petitions, protests and by showing up to register
